Additionally, students who are TASFA recipients must have a valid Employment Authorization Card.

Remember: it's ok if you don't have job experience. If this is your first job or you do not have a long job history, think about other activities that might demonstrated your skills. Perhaps you helped organized a food drive, or you worked on a group project in high school. These are all things that you can use in your cover letter, résumé, and interview.
